lest you think i've passed on to the next life...

...i am alive (hoorah!)...but am on a very slow mend it seems. let's see - i've been out of work for 2 weeks, my mom flew out because i felt like i was ready to die - she stayed with me for a week; got me through my doctor's appointments & surgery that was on tuesday. she just left & i'm pretty melancholy - however, the mister is here for a week, which is excellent. & i'm actually going to try to go back to work starting monday. i'm on this new medication to help my stomach & my general well being & demeanor...doc says it'll take about a month to kick in. so basically, i still get the pleasure of feeling like crap for a while now. but look at me! i'm blogging! now that is progress. maybe i'll even be able to post some more pictures soon (of the walls i've been staring at?! no, no - i'm knitting a really pretty scarf - i'll show that soon).

...& now that i feel like this blog has become my personal health journal, rather than my sprout studio musings...i'll try to be better about posting more sprout news! (but they all get jumbled together anyways...so you'll most likely be getting both - i don't separate sprout & life very well...it all gets mooshed together)

thanks for checking in with me & your thoughts & sweet words that some of you have sent; it definitely brightens my day - & has made the past few weeks more bearable...

xxx. to all of you! :)

Hi Jenifer, I have been visiting your blog and site for a bit now. Following along and never peeking in to say Hi, yes, I know, that's kinda lame.
I'm glad to hear you're on the uphill swing health wise. Enjoy knitting that scarf in those familiar walls.
